Questioner General

Okay folks I need your help.

I had been using my LG wide screen monitor with my 2018 MacBook Pro. I bought the screen because of the spilt screen compatibility (I do alot of Live streaming and need multiple windows open). Well

my laptop started acting up in November so I bought the mac mini and now my LG monitor works but I can't use the spilt screen. The icon is grayed out(like not loaded?) and it says no monitor connected. Well, I can see that the monitor is connected- its what I use everyday.



This is so frustrating and if I can't get it fixed I will have to return my mac mini. ughhhh.

Please help a girl out. I'm also ready to purchase a second monitor but am holding on that til I can get this fixed.

Thanks!

We uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and it works now!

How are you connecting the display? The M1 Mac mini can have two connections, but one of them has to use the HDMI port.
